A typical washoku restaurant serves sushi and tempura.


Washoku restaurants often serve Japanese traditional dishes like sushi and tempura using a tray. Below is a picture of a traditional Japanese washoku. The sushi on the left end is tuna. The following are squid, boiled shrimp, sea bream, boiled sea eel, salmon, flatfish, and salmon roe. On the right side, the dish on a flat plate on the right side is tempura - two shrimps, pumpkin, eggplant, and a small sweet green pepper. We eat them after soaking the dipped soup stock. The rest are miso soup and chawanmushi which is an egg custard dish. The custard consists of an egg mixture flavored with soy sauce, soup stock, and mirin, with numerous ingredients such as kamaboko, chicken, boiled shrimp and eel.
